I had time between meetings today so I stopped by the campus bookstore and snagged these two titles. #bookhaul #pocauthors #readdiversebooks #ownvoices #weneeddiversebooks #yalit #blitsy #blacklitsy

TheWordJar I have On the Come Up waiting for me on my bookshelves, and I‘m on the hold list for Dear Martin. I‘ve heard such good things about them! 1w

Chelleo @Karkar Sadly, I‘ve owned the ebook for months and still haven‘t read it but I couldn‘t pass up the print deal. 1w
MidnightBookGirl Loved On the Come Up! 1w
CoffeeNBooks Dear Martin is really good! 1w
RebL I just finished OTCU maybe 5 minutes ago. I like it even better than THUG. 1w
Chelleo @RebL Really?! Ok, I can‘t read both books at the same time, how am I going to choose?!?!? 😭 1w
RebL @Chelleo Yes. I liked both, but Bri is so much more herself (for a fictional character). She‘s not a navel gazer, though her tendency to act first and think later gets her in trouble. I like her arc. Plus the wordplay is fun. 1w
Chelleo @RebL It‘s a great review! You should post it. Thanks! 1w
RaimeyGallant On the Come Up is so good! 7d

Haven‘t been able to find anything that really pulls me in so I‘m checking this one out. #currentlylistening #audiocommute #audiodriving #readdiversebooks #weneeddiversebooks #ownvoice #pocauthors #blacklitsy #blitsy

MaureenMc I recently listened to this audio, too. Great story, and I really liked the narrator. 1w

I had to renew my library card today, so of course I checked out some books while I was there! #LibraryHaul

I also went to my mailbox for the first time in almost a week and found some #LitsyLove from @Rissreads and @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 💕 Thank you ladies!

Then I did some shopping for my #SummerSolsticeBookExchange! I love shopping for swaps!!!

Why have I been so drawn to romance this year? 🤷🏻‍♀️ This one is lovely! It would be obvious to compare it to The Rosie Project (protagonist on the Austrian Spectrum finds love!) But it‘s very different! #weneeddiversebooks

This book is super crude and quite weird but I kinda love it? It feels very authentic teenage boy. #YA #BisexualBooks #WeNeedDiverseBooks #LGBTQBooks

This was recommended as a [Vietnamese female written and narrated] companion to [the misogynistic white American male perspective in] The Things They Carried. I'm not sure if it'll work for that purpose, especially given the choppy nature of the storytelling, but I might be able to extract a few excerpts. #weneeddiversebooks #AmericanLit #Vietnam #teachersoflitsy

This book was just as cute as the adorable cover! But I'm bummed her stories about queer and disabled characters only get novellas and the straight abled characters get the novels? Anyway, I really liked this story, which is told half in flashbacks of when the women first met and Fab ghosted Likotsi and when they meet again months later. If you're waiting for the sex scene, you just might have to wait until the end... Also I want to marry Likotsi.

TieDyeDude Have you read anything else by her? 1mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @TieDyeDude Yep, I've read the first two novels and the other novella in the Reluctant Royals series and also An Extraordinary Union. 1mo

I am a sook when a book has an animal. I always cry. Here‘s my #rockycat looking innocent when he‘s just as likely to take a nip at me. #currentlyreading #preview #junerso2019 #middlefiction #weneeddiversebooks #catsoflitsy
